I wanted to cover this plain little basket with some SU! material and found that it was quite easy...I put the basket on the material, pulled and bunched it up like I was going to wrap it and judged about 2" extra and cut it. Then I trimmed up nice, folded it over about an 1 1/2", sewed all around and left about a 2" gap, and put some elastic in it for the ruffle. The handle is a 2" strip of material doubled the length of what I wanted the handle to be and sewn up with a pipe cleaner in it. Then I bunched and twisted the material around the pipe cleaner to give it that look, I ended up hot gluing it to the basket. Also, hot glued on some buttons. Tomorrow I'll show how I made the big button with brad...gotta finish Easter dinner and head out. I wish everybody a wonderful and happy Easter!

I love the Tasteful Trim Bigz XL Die. It's perfect for the material that SU! has for us.The flower strip is cut from Flirtatious and is about 16" long and attached to a 1 3/4" circle cut out of our sticky sheets. I adhered one side to a piece of chip board the same size. All you have to do is start winding the trim starting on the outside of the circle and go round and round until you get to the middle. If you have extra trim left just cut it off or if you have room for more trim cut some more. Then put a beautiful Large Pearl (page 26 in the Occasions Mini) in the middle or whatever bling you like. There's also a strip of Attic Boutique DS paper (page 23 Occasions Mini) and I spritzed with Soft Suede.

I used the awesome Blossom Builder kit on page 18 of the Occasions Mini. This kit comes with beautiful, bright flower self-adehive die-cuts AND pretty, pretty pink rhinestone! This card used the Blossom punch, polkao-dot embossing folder.

I used the Hearts Framelits Die to cut the pretty heart out and embossed it with pewter embossing powder ( BEAUTIFUL!!! ). Then I snailed a piece of cs underneath it and used snail to attach the Pleated Satin Ribbon (which I love!)around the heart and attached to card with dimensionals half on ribbon and heart.
